Copestylum - Copestylum lentum - female

Copestylum - Copestylum lentum - Female
San Felipe Valley, BLM preserve, San Diego County, California, USA
March 18, 1999
Size: BL about 9 mm
This flower fly was seen on Narrowleaf Goldenbush (Ericameria linearifolius). It resembles C. marginatum a lot. Eyes are separated so I am checking female. Notice the blotchy black area around the antennal insertions.
